Best short zoom for Nikon D500


What is your opinion on the best short zoom for the Nikon D500?

I think I've narrowed it down to the Tokina 14-20mm f/2.0 or the Sigma 18-25 f/1.8. The Sigma concerns me because of the possible need to buy the USB dock, and the fiddling to get the lens sharp. (But how nice to have f/1.8!)

I like that the Tokina is smaller and lighter.

I'm also considering the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED, but it does not seem to come out ahead of the Tokina or the Sigma in a reviews.

Thanks to everyone for their time and attention!
